Kyle Jamieson took his second five-wicket haul as New Zealand ripped through the West Indies batting lineup to leave it in dire straits on 124-8 at the close of play of the second day of the second Test at the Basin Reserve on Saturday.

Chemar Holder was on five and Joshua Da Silva on two with the visitor still 336 runs behind the host's 460 and facing the possibility of another heavy defeat. It lost the first Test in Hamilton by an innings and 134 runs.

Only a stubborn Jermaine Blackwood, who defied New Zealand in the first Test at Seddon Park to score his second Test century, provided any real resistance, with 69 before he became Tim Southee's third wicket about 30 minutes before stumps.

New Zealand had been dismissed after lunch, with Henry Nicholls producing a career-best 174, while Neil Wagner finished on a pugnacious 66 not out, his first Test half-century.

Southee dismissed Kraigg Brathwaite and Darren Bravo cheaply before Jamieson ripped the heart out of its remaining top order in his first over.

He had John Campbell caught at second slip by Tom Latham for 14, then bowled Roston Chase for a golden duck.

With his side 29-4, Blackwood was struck on the pad on the hat-trick delivery but given not out by umpire Chris Brown, with the television review upholding the decision.

Blackwood survived another review on the next ball with another full swinging delivery that cannoned into his pads.

Jamieson returned at the end of the day to dismiss Shamarh Brooks (14), Jason Holder (nine) and Alzarri Joseph for a duck, to finish with 5-34.

He took a career-best 5-45 against India earlier this year.
